A public opinion survey has shown that the public deemed the second term of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono a failure, with more than 85 percent of the respondents saying that they were dissatisfied with the current situation.

The survey, conducted by the Jakarta-based Reform Institute, found that Yudhoyono had failed to capitalize on the high level of support that he had during the early part of his presidency.

Chairman of the Reform Institute Yudi Latif said that Yudhoyono and members of his administration had simply failed to perform their job.

Earlier in June, a public opinion poll, conducted by the National Survey Institute (LSN) revealed that 49 percent of 1,230 respondents thought that Yudhoyono, since winning his second five-year term in 2010, had created no significant improvements for the country.

Thirty percent of respondents perceived the country to be worse off under Yudhoyono'€™s second term.
